What to expect
More about me and what you can
expect from Flourish Counselling.
I am passionate about being a light in dark places. I believe every person has inherent value and deserves to flourish in all aspects of their lives. I have walked my own difficult roads, and I think this better positions me to help others. I strive for excellence in all areas of my life.
As a woman of faith, I believe in grace, and that each person has a special and precious plan for their lives.
Counselling at Flourish is focused on the holistic well-being of an individual. The bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to counselling helps us to understand the number of factors that can influence an individual's wellness. I am oriented towards care and support, through providing a place where clients can talk through what they are facing or struggling with in a safe, non-judgmental space. Counselling is often referred to as "talk therapy", and there is clear evidence that people are able to explore their problems and find solutions through a therapeutic relationship. I adhere to a client-centered approach, where the client leads and guides the process completely. Counselling is not about the counsellor telling the client what they think they should do, but is a collaborative relationship. My goal is for my clients to walk away feeling heard, supported and empowered. As such, the counselling journey will be unique to each individual.
There are a vast number of reasons you may seek counselling, including: stress management, trauma debriefing, bereavement, interpersonal social relationships, support for daily struggles and problems. Many people find they need the space to speak and process freely, and a therapeutic relationship allows this.
Please note that assessment and diagnosing mental disorders are not within my scope of practice.
Commitment to Clients

I give of my utmost to each client, and do not discriminate on any basis. I am committed to honesty, integrity and continued self and professional development. If I do not feel that I can treat you appropriately, I will refer you to someone better able to help you.
